Contact Dr Hossein Balaghi Enalou


Hossein joined the centre for propulsion engineering at Cranfield University in October 2020. Before that he was a research fellow in the PEMC group at the University of Nottingham to develop a test rig for high-performance electric power generation for aerospace applications. He has an M.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering from Sharif University of Technology, and a PhD from the University of Nottingham. He was awarded first prize for his innovative work on the “Electric Power Transfer Concept for Improved Performance of Multi-spool Turbofan Jet Engine”, winning the prestigious "EU CleanSky Best PhD award" in 2020.

Since 2010, he has been working on performance modelling of gas and steam turbines. He has conducted research dealing with the development of More-Electric Aircraft, namely focusing on highly-innovative ways of optimal power off-take from multi-spool jet engine, including control of power transfer between shafts for significant improvements in engine performance, as well as on ways of optimised conversion of this power into electrical energy to supply increased number of onboard loads. 


Current activities

Hossein is currently a research fellow in hybrid electric propulsion architectures, carrying out research on novel engine configurations and cycles, and thermal management aspects of hybrid electric propulsion architectures.
